The financial crisis is here for some time. Whether you believe the crisis is suitably defended by the majority explanation or whether you believe this is a symptom of a deeper systemic crisis of capitalism and a failure of economic behaviour itself, the financial crisis is critical. It is almost universally believed that we are experiencing the autumnal falling leaves prior to a more intense financial winter. So, in preparation, our corporations, charities and government departments rustle and search in the fallen leaves for suitable cost saving opportunities as the prospects for new revenue gradually recede, cautiously slumber or semi-permanently hibernate.

Organisations traditionally instigate a hiring freeze immediately to cut costs, often enact a period of redundancies and mount a freeze on flights or expensive travel costs. Purchases over a certain threshold are passed through greater examination and rejections of purchase requests increase. Customer courtesy calls are reduced, team building events are dropped and corporate seasonal celebrations are cancelled. All round the organisation the message and culture of cost saving and operational efficiency is spread and embedded.

So, it is a great time to introduce something new that saves money, certainly. Adoption of agile processes has proved to be financially positive and, with some measure of governance and process, the costs of the whole agile estate can be reduced and managed professionally.
